Student Wellbeing

Peer Support

At St John the Baptist Freshwater, we provide students with a supportive learning environment.

The peer support program encourages students to develop the skills, understanding and strategies to improve mental well-being, resilience, assertiveness, decision making, problem solving and leadership.

Year Six student leaders are provided with leadership training, on the school grounds, to empower and support students through the Peer Support framework.

The peer support program is run over eight weeks and students are split into small collaborative peers groups incorporate students from all years.
